One of the highlights of my trip to Utah was the night I met up for an almost-didn't-happen-but-thankfully-did dinner with two of my favorite daily reads, Kami and Mindi. My days just wouldn't be the same without either of these bloggers and their unique points of view.
I would not be surprised to learn someday that Kami is part Disney. The girl is uber-talented, beautiful, thoughtful, assertive (she directed a perfect stranger to take 27 pictures of us), and would likely get along well with royalty, woodland creatures and dwarves alike. She inspires me with her incredible design, photography, and do-it-yourself skills. But most of all, she's really fun to hang out with. (She also taught me about using Picnik, which has lead to my current obsession. Can't you tell?)
Mindi--equally beautiful and thoughtful--is hilarious and exudes a cool factor in the 99th percentile, even though she recently admitted to using a refill mug. And let's talk a minute about her generous streak, okay? She tipped our waitress VERY amply and also offered to set me and Ryan up in a hotel room for the night, though I had to regretfully decline. (Ryan and me alone in a hotel room? What would my parents think?!) I rely on Mindi's blog to keep me apprised of all things current, cool, and quirky. Her sense of humor is unmatched.
Time really flew by and before we knew it, the restaurant employees were locking the doors, mopping the floors, and wondering if the three ladies in the booth would ever shut up. (The answer: no.) We talked about so many things, not the least of which was blogging and how each of us has evolved in our relationship with this strange new medium of self-expression.
It was a great night. Thanks again, ladies!
